Certainly, MSNBC contributor Brittany Packnett Cunningham was happy by the result of the trial of the lads charged within the loss of life of Ahmaud Arbery. However the focus of her feedback on MSNBC on Wednesday evening leaves you questioning whether or not she noticed the verdicts as complicating her activity of portray the USA as irretrievably racist. You may’t ever really feel higher about it.

Interviewed by visitor host Jonathan Capehart on The eleventh Hour, Cunningham by no means as soon as talked about {that a} nearly all-white jury in a Deep South state had convicted all three defendants of homicide. As an alternative, Cunningham downplayed the verdicts as “actually the very least we’re owed.”

Cunningham concentrated as an alternative on every part she sees as fallacious with America. Thus, she decried the acquittal of police officer Darren Wilson for what she referred to as the “homicide” of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. This regardless of the Justice Division run by Eric Holder, Obama’s Lawyer Common, having cleared Wilson, discovering “no credible proof that Wilson willfully shot Brown as he was making an attempt to give up or was in any other case not posing a risk.”

Obama/Holder: white supremacist racists, too?

Capehart additionally requested Cunningham to touch upon the column by Charles Blow of the New York Occasionswho referred to as Kyle Rittenhouse a “assassin” regardless of his acquittal on all fees—by which he claimed that there are different Rittenhouses on the market. Cunningham fervently agreed, saying:

Jonathan Capehart Brittany Packnett Cunningham MSNBC The Last Word 11-24-21“It’s a certain incontrovertible fact that there are different Kyle Rittenhouses on the market. And we all know that they are on the market because lots of their dad and mom are marching into faculty board conferences as we communicate attempting to make it possible for the historical past of this nation is just not taught.”

In different phrases, dad and mom who object to their kids being indoctrinated with Vital Race Principle are racists who’re elevating tomorrow’s Rittenhouses.

Chalk this one up below “no occasion of justice goes unpunished.” Telling America that it doesn’t matter what occurs, the nation stays basically evil, is not any technique to win hearts and minds — or elections.

JONATHAN CAPEHART: Becoming a member of me now’s veteran social-justice activist Brittany Packnett Cunningham, a former member of President Obama’s twenty first Century Policing Process Drive.

. . . 

BRITTANY PACKNETT CUNNINGHAM: I am serious about the non-conviction of Darren Wilson for the homicide of Mike Brown in Ferguson in 2014. There is a lengthy sample, a protracted thread right here, of not solely this legal authorized system letting individuals off the hook for doing the job that too typically it desires to have the ability to do itself, of controlling and reining in black individuals and black freedom, however I am additionally considering of the actual thread that then takes these of us and lionizes them, that they need to create one other statute to face at that altar of white supremacy that they will worship and study from. 

. . . 

CAPEHART: You understand, Brittany, New York Occasions columnist Charles Blow writes, “the good risk, and actual chance, is that there are different Rittenhouses on the market—younger males who watched this verdict and noticed how the fitting has embraced and celebrated a assassin, and now need to observe his lead.” Brittany, how can our nation reply to white vigilantes being impressed by the Rittenhouse acquittal?

CUNNINGHAM: Properly, I feel that Charles Blow is spot on, and the reality of the matter is, it is not possible or attainable. It’s a certain incontrovertible fact that there are different Kyle Rittenhouses on the market. And we all know that they are on the market as a result of lots of their dad and mom are marching into faculty board conferences as we communicate, attempting to make it possible for the historical past of this nation is just not taught.

. . . 

The responsible verdicts that we noticed within the Arbery homicide trial at this time, that was actually the very least that we’re owed

CAPEHART: — Proper.

CUNNINGHAM: — and you understand how a lot it took for us to even get a semblance of that type of accountability. So this work goes to proceed.
